  • Mr. Biggs and the "Way Back Time Machine"

    I was perusing and organizing some old Studebaker items and came across the Summer 1975 edition of Style and Stamina that was put out by The Studebaker Owners Club of America. Inside was a welcome for our own Mr. Biggs as a new member. He apparently took no time in exercising the rights of this membership as I also found he had a few items to sell. Below is the ad verbatim (with my added emphasis on the prices):

    FOR SALE: 54 Packard Pacific Hardtop, not running, solid body, 95 percent complete $300 56 Stude President, no rust, all orig, sweet running, $500.00 58 Commander Hardtop, 39,000 miles, super clean, good running, $1200. 64 Daytona Hardtop, near mint, AT, little rust in floor panels, $450. Bob Kabchef, 217 Donna Lynn Drive, Smyrna, Ga. 30080 404-436-3754.

    I was tempted to call the number to see if the '58 was still available!

    Yup, I remember them all. That '56 went to a guy who worked with me. He drove that thing across the US and back (after it had been well-travelled with me). Then while driving it across town one day, it's 289 just up and quit. The crankshaft had sheared in half![xx(]

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle!!

    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        I've collected old books and magazines since I was a teen. Most of this is gone now, lost to fire and my sister. Still, with those that are left, I can see the ads from the '50s and '60s with their beautiful cars. And the price of a new car! Oh my!

        We had a black and white tele till I was a teenager. So I still enjoy black and white programmes and some ads I've seen on the net. And Grandmum's Pierce Arrow. What a car! It was thirty years old when she died. You'd never know that by looking at it. It's funny, I remember one trip where we hiked over to Mr. Charles' garage and saw the cars 'in bed' (as GM used to call it). That little Lark wagon looked so demure and unpretentious between the PA and the 'Hornet.
